October 7th, 2014 by Bill McGee

A few weeks back, we sat down with Carl Shaulis at HomeAway to learn how they leverage Sauce Labs‘ cloud in their testing process.

HomeAway, Inc. is the world’s leading online marketplace for the vacation rental industry. With over one million live vacation rental listings in 190 countries paired with a family of 50 websites and hundreds of applications thanks to a series of acquisitions, quality is their top priority. To get ahead of the curve, Carl’s team is trying to automate and use best practices like continuous integration as much as possible. We were also thrilled to hear that they’re using Appium, a cross-platform test automation framework powered by Sauce Labs, for their mobile testing.  Carl also says Sauce fits perfectly into their testing process.
